Hollywood has always been a strange place, but it's never been stranger than now. These days, black magic plays a part in everyday life. Everybody does it, except for Phillip Lovecraft (Dennis Hopper). He's a detective with a difference. He won't fool with dark forces...unless he has to. Fate takes his hand when Kim Hudson (Penelope Ann Miller), a beautiful blonde starlet with more to her than meets the eye, stalks into Lovecraft's office with a proposition. Her career is in the dumps now that her multi-millionaire mogul has found a dame to take her place. Lovecraft is hired to keep an eye on him - but ends up eyeballing his corpse. Someone has murdered the mogul with magic, but who? It's up to our tough-talking, hard-hitting private eye to come up with the answer. But will Lovecraft turn to magic, or will magic turn on him? And what does Miss Hudson have up her sleeve that makes men's heads turn? All that's concealed will soon be revealed when Dennis Hopper as Phillip Lovecraft takes you to the heart of a Hollywood Witch Hunt.
